13 406 Oakland Athletics Jacob Tanis 3B Ga.
Mercer's top draft pick will be third baseman Jacob Tanis, who is slow afoot but otherwise has solid-average tools. Tanis has a feel for hitting and produces good bat speed and power from the right side. He was much more patient in 2011 (35 walks after 15 last season) and maintained his power production despite the bat change, belting 15 home runs. He may lack the quick feet for third base and profiles better behind the plate at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. He wasn't picked as a draft-eligible sophomore a year ago.
25 775 Cincinnati Reds Justice French RHP Ga.
Justice French, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound sinkerballer with a decent slider and changeup, should be picked. French had by far his best season in 2011, allowing only one home run in 80 innings.
28 854 Los Angeles Dodgers Joey Winker OF Ga.
32 967 Washington Nationals Billy Burns OF Ga.
